If mini golf is your idea of fun, then look no further than Holey Moley, everyone's favourite put put and games bar. With locations in Darlinghurst and Newtown, this Happy Gilmore-approved mini golf course is sure bring out the big kid in you. Grab your clubs and make your way around the 18 pop-reference themed holes. Drinking on the job may affect your aim, but at least you’ll have fun doing it, right? Order the ‘Sugar Caddy’ topped with a candy kebab. If golf isn’t your thing, there’s plenty of other gimmicks to see you through the night, like retro arcade games and karaoke.
